Faux Patina Mixed Media Tag with Tina Stepanova

Hi gang! It’s Tina here today to share with you a mixed media tag made with Lindy’s Magical Shakers and Embossing Powder.


I started with applying a white gesso on a corrugated cardboard tag, and then added modeling paste through a stencil. I also painted chipboard gears and flowers with the gesso and glued them to the tag.


Next, I added a mix of a modeling paste and art stones to make the background more complicated. And after that, I used Oktoberfest Orange and Bratwurst Brown Magical Shakers to get such a beautiful color on the piece.


Then I text stamped a little with an archival ink.


To highlight the colors of the tag I decided to hot emboss it here and there with Guten Tag Teal and Bratwurst Brown embossing powders. I like to use a sponge for applying an embossing ink.


And here is the final result!




I also created a step-by-step video for you, hope you will enjoy it! You can watch the video below or on Lindy’s Stamp Gang Youtube Channel.
